Harry Potter and the Four Lessons of the Chambal Farmer’s Victory

what no more sunrise, of “nothing can happen now” dominant syndrome

The special of these days is not ‘what’s happening’, the label or the dominant syndrome of these days. of “nothing can happen now” There is feeling. With great effort, enormous expense and in a systematic way, it has moved to a large part of society. The feeling has been created that like now the light will remain only in memories, that there will never be a sunrise, that now there will only be wolves patrolling: humans will remain in captivity, like this and how they are, like hahn and how . Tain, com etc. and etc.!!

Are things really that hard now?,

Not that it’s just limited to the common people, these days it’s about everyone, not just two or ten. Even those who were always repressed by the ruling class of society, far from voicing their disagreement, were not even allowed to raise questions. His point is understandable, but these days they also have this condition, that they themselves fought countless belligerent battles in their lives, often showed attitude and made sacrifices. It is also seen from those who themselves became Shama to break the darkness and to keep the flame burning, they also became the people who were consumed by them, who awakened the sleeping people and inspired the people to fight They too, many of them, have begun to feel that the situation is now very difficult, this Nothing can be done now. It is completely ahistorical. But the question is, why?

It didn’t happen suddenly, it was conceived…

The rulers have prepared for themselves, their friends, their dignified people and their mentality, putting all their horses, donkeys and mules to work. This is the true art of rulership. As Karl Marx said; “Capitalism not only produces goods for people, it also produces people for their goods.” It has strengthened its ideological supremacy; It takes the Tina syndrome (no option now) to new levels of ‘Ab yehi Niyati Hai’. It is an enterprise to deprive humanity of its natural qualities: to question, to dissent, to resist, to reform and to change. Instead of turning the individual into an empowered conscious citizen, attempts are made to turn him into a slave and a slave.

Not that it happened by itself. Many nets were laid for this. The incredibly interesting series of novels “Harry Potter” that began this century has a tremendous saga of this conflict. Before there were dementors, who as soon as they entered the scene, the atmosphere was filled with strange negativity and cynicism. They used to take the enthusiasm, the vitality out of the person, they made him despair. They used to suck the soul of whoever they hugged or kissed; The person used to remain as a body without feelings and without meaning. Likewise, demons are everywhere today. They come in the form of a newspaper in the morning, they sit in the bedroom in the form of television all day, even at night. Sitting with their pockets full of mobiles and filling their ears day and night with Hindus and Muslims, there is a difference in the family between a lower caste and a man and a woman. Together they frighten, provoke, put to sleep and also deceive.

But man is a thinking creature, he often swears and breaks this illusion.

In Madhya Pradesh, the struggle of Chambal farmers to save Chambal, its ravines, villages and agriculture is the latest example of this commitment. Forcing the central government to withdraw this disastrous project is a great achievement; At the same time, it is a denial of the ‘nothing can happen’ syndrome, a recognition of the fact that struggle remains the most effective way to achieve results.

what was the shambal movement (What was the Chambal movement?)

The government has stopped the plan to build a 404 km long Atal Express Highway in the Chambal ravines due to strong anger and agitation by the farmers of Ater in Sheopur, the support it received and preparations for a greater movement. Under this plan, a 404 km road ‘Atal Progress Way’ was proposed to be constructed from Etawa, Uttar Pradesh to Kota Rajasthan near Bhind district through Chambal ravines.

More recently, in the name of land acquisition, 10,000 landowning farmer families were being displaced from Bhind Morena Sheopur Kalan districts. Who proposed to be given land or some compensation on behalf of.

Apart from these, the state government has made a plan to destroy about 30 thousand farming families who have been cultivating the rugged land for generations. No land or compensation of any kind was given to these peasant families. Generally, after displacing farmers with very little compensation and getting the highway built, the state government came up with a plan to hand over the valuable thousands of hectares of the Chambal ravines to corporates.

This land was to be given to the corporations in a corridor of one kilometer on both sides of the road. In which the interest of the farmers was not seen nor was the damage to the environment and the ecosystem assessed. The land acquisition process was started by hastily approving the plan. Against this, the Madhya Pradesh Kisan Sabha (AIKS) launched a movement and campaign in full swing.

lessons of victory

Although this campaign launched by the Kisan Sabha MP is an example in itself, it needs to be documented by doing detailed case studies, but for now three aspects need to be highlighted. one; A good start to the fight on any subject is made by collecting all the facts related to that subject and studying its imminent and far-reaching effects. another; When intentions, intentions and apprehensions are brought to the public by taking the effort and risk to say them plainly, it breaks out of its narrow political caste consciousness and unites around this issue. Thirdly, this awakening and restlessness of his is expressed in any way; The ruling party’s defeat in the recent elections in Chambal and its adjoining districts is a case in point.

This is not the first victory of Chambal farmers. Twice before this, he has reclaimed his twenty thousand hectares of land from the jaws of energy-protected crocodiles, thwarted the intention to run a bulldozer on 3000 houses in Jaura Nagar.

This did not happen, the work of the heroes and soldiers of all these battles, the awakening from village to village is behind it.

Obviously, winning is not enough. It has a timeline; Motion makes mounds of dry clay friable, motion moistens it, struggle turns wet earth into bricks, victory bakes those bricks. But then the same as this is not enough. Strong strong, strong should be made for the future by using these bricks systematically. Since wolves once raised can attack again, these fortresses are essential to defend and fight them.

We hope that the bricks made by Chambal farmers through their campaign, movement, struggle and victory will reach their logical conclusion; Peasants and workers will be transformed into strongholds of the organization.
